theme which is the restructuring of u.s. foreign policy that followed the end of the cold war, and in particular the movement of u.s. foreign policy away from the theme of anticommunism after the fall of the berlin wall in 1989 to a new theme which is, i would argue, the dominant one today of humanitarian intervention. now, the theme of humanitarian intervention, you know, is a very wide spread one. as jacqueline noted, you know, it's the basic operational idea behind the safe darfur movement which advocates u.s. military intervention in the darfur region of sudan. it is also to some extent the justification for the iraq and more recently as well the afghan war. a topic of, obviously, very current importance. but really the idea of humanitarian intervention for the post-cold war period, i would argue, was forged in the former yugoslavia. that's really where the idea was, to some extent, created at least in its modern form and was established, really, as the main justification for u.s. foreign policy. and in particular what you had was an ideological shift in the united states

's in our washington newsroom. pete, good evening. >> reporter: brian, though some u.s. intelligence officials say there wasn't enough to go on to put the man accused of the bombing on a watch list, president obama, nonetheless, believes there was. and we're hearing new details tonight from a passenger who was on that plane. a maryland real estate consultant still has his boarding pass from the christmas day flight to detroit. he sat across the plane and one row ahead of the man charged with trying to blow it up. gona says he was among the first to notice the smoke and yell for help. >> most of the passengers started to panic. there was a lot of ladies around, and they start panicking. one specific one sitting on my left, on the aisle of the middle section, she was screaming, i don't want to die. i don't want to die. i want out. >> reporter: a detroit man snapped this picture of the spot where investigators say umar farouk abdulmutullab tried to set off his explosives. but president obama says the u.s. intelligence system should have noticed something was wrong much earlier. back in

of the massacre were probably exaggerated by u.s. officials. they claimed that not only were the people killed but they were tortured and dismembered. that isn't true. a later forensic investigations revealed they weren't tortured or disfigured. nevertheless, it does appear there had been a massacre. it was not an armed confrontation as the serbs claimed. and this is widely publicized as an example of, you know, atrocious action by the serbs which undoubtedly it was. the united states then worked with europe to call a major peace conference in february of 1999 for a full settlement of the kosovo conflict. it took place in a castle outside of paris. it was officially chaired by the foreign ministers of france and britain, though, behind the scenes the u.s. clearly played a dominating role. and the united states and its european allies put together a predetermined agreement that's quite complex but, in essence, what it demanded was that the serbs would have to agree to full regional autonomy for kosovo, not independence. independence at this point was ruled out. but full regional autonomy for ko
to be the consensus, too. but i'd be more cautious than keen. it seems to me we have a huge problem for the u.s. consumer. that's one of the big issues. they have a lot of debt which they need to pay down. the size of the public secretary herb debt is huge and central banks will be looking to exit from their quantitative easing and other lax monetary policies that they've been adopting during the year. maybe some asian central banks may be forced to raise interest rates because of inflationary pressures. that could begin to sow seeds of doubt about this recovery to continue at the rate that we've seen it in the last couple of quarters. nat, i suspect that the economy will not grow as fast as the markets expect both in the g7 and therefore in the emerging economies. it still depends on u.s. consumer and g-7 demand for their ex ports. that may disappoint investors as we go through the year. after that, we could see a much more difficult period both for the economy and therefore for equity investors in particular. >> bob, i just want to pick up on one of the points we want to talk about earlier. a
is the u.s. going to fight it? >>> good evening and thanks for being with us. a mix of human and systemic failure, that's how president obama described the circumstances that led up to the near tragedy on christmas morning. he made the surprise statement late this afternoon from his vacation home in hawaii saying, "the intelligence community knew about umar farouk abdulmutallab weeks ago and failed to spread word that would have put him on the no-fly list." our ed henry is following that part of the story for us and will join us in just a moment from hawaii. first, though, the latest on the investigation tonight from homeland security correspondent jeanne meserve. she joins us live tonight from washington with breaking news about the cia's role in this systemic failure. hi, jeanne. >> hi, john. this information coming to us from a single, well-placed source, who tell us that someone from the cia met with the father of umar farouk abdulmutallab in nigeria and spoke with him and prepared a report on his concerns that his son had become radicalized and might have gone to yemen. what i'm told
and number two, why was he on the airplane in the first place when he was on a terrorist data base with the u.s. government and so the president has ordered investigations into those two questions and we expect he'll give us an update on where those reviews are. >> why did it take him so long to speak publicly? is it because of the criticism he's been receiving? >> reporter: in fairness to the president, his approach is to not jump into something immediately. let it play out and make sure you don't make the situation worse. maybe even in the initial hours that you don't give the potential terrorists there even more attention. and i can tell you when the incident first played out, aides suggested to us that the president didn't need to say anything. he could let others like janet napolitano do it. he faced criticism from republicans saying he needed to get out and reassure the nation that air travel is safe. perhaps that he heard that criticism and given the fact that the homeland security secretary didn't do a great job explaining this to the public and reassuring them, now you have to put out

is a situation where a u.s. embassy gave him a multientry ceasia and an american embassy in nigeria tipped off to him. is the united states government saying anything about this tonight? >> they are neither connecting the dots or emphasizing or explaining why this is this ramping up or significant ramping up of the security. when i spoke to a u.s. official earlier today, greta, what they said to me is that absent information to the contrary, they would have to increase security with the knowledge that there could be potentially others out there who want to attempt similar acts but at that time in the afternoon there was no information to suggest that was the case. but it was certainly something they had to consider given previous experience. >> greta: in terms of amping up security i'm all for being really careful in the future for people who buy tickets in cash and don't have any luggage and are on some type of list. they are talking about now not letting people use blankets and limited to one carryon. when they say they are increasing security, what is the government talking about? >> well,

was turned over to u.s. authorities, why wasn't it discovered he was on the plane? it seems his connections go back to yemen. of course, there is an al qaeda branch there, too. we simply do not know yet whether this is a lone actor who was just inspired to do something, maybe from the internet, or someone who really was carrying out some kind of plot. i will tell you this-- one high-ranking official said to me if you look at all of the elements here, this did not have the earmarks of a sophisticated and well-planned attack. that might be a clue heacked alone. >> glor: i think that's a very important point to make tonight. bob, the president says they're increasing security for all airline flights. what does that mean? >> reporter: first of all, please understand the security for aviation is very high. it's been at orange since 2006. there's an erroneous report the level has been lifted to orange. it's already at owner. what this will mean, undoubtedly, is more and more people will be checked for explosive residue. when you go through the airport and they swab your bag and check for traces
